Rosenstein & Wray Visit Gen. Kelly

According to NBC News, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray are visiting John F. Kelly, President Donald Trump's chief-of-staff, at the White House.

Andrew McCabe

Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, whose wife received money from Hillary Clinton-tied SuperPACs when she ran for a Virginia Senate seat, stepped down on Monday. It is unclear whether Rosenstein, Wray, and Kelly's discussion will concern the departure of McCabe, who was controversial in conservative circles due to his Clinton connections.

The meeting could also regard the House Intelligence Committee's vote to declassify the GOP's memo on FISA abuses, which was conducted on Monday evening.

The White House vows that President Trump had no role in the early retirement of McCabe, who was slated to step down in a month. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, "The president wasn't part of the decision-making process."
